The Holden Special Vehicles is the official performance vehicle partner of Holden, the Australian automaker. Their official car entry today is the 2017 HSV GTSR. It offers a wider, lower, and more muscular stance in reinforcing the company'mark on the track. The courageous image design of the vehicle is the key drivers of the GTSR program.

This car features a new fascia in the front with accents in matte black. It also shows an intense graphics that gives a full air-intake delivering racing looks. For a more active stance, it required an all-new panorama alloy wheels measuring 20 x 9 for the front and 20 x 10 for the rear. These modern five spoke alloys gives a hyper dark stainless finish on the GTSR.

The 2017 HSV GTSR break package and wheel range feature 5P tyres of the Continental ContiSport Contact. Tires are all fitted to HSV model cars ever since the launch of the HSV's Gen-F range.It was picked for the wet weather performance and dryness as well as their excellent road handling and smooth ride flow.

One of the best braking packages in the world has taken the radical design of AP Racing to an all new level. It accurately offers an exceptional brake modulation, stopping power, and a firmer feeling of the pedals.

This car model is powered by a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine that highlights a racer designed dry sump system of lubrication. The said engine can also be found on the American car model, Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 that can boost power beyond 474kW and a torque of 815 lb-ft.

To distribute the power to the 2017 HSV GTSRs rear wheels, the company performed some changes on the internal transmission. The same as the Tremac TR6060 manual transmission in six-speed, it was strengthened by some components from Corvette to have some extra torque. In addition, the set ratio is to maximize the bond between the driver and the engine.
